    Free Game Of The Week: Throw Paper 11th Sep 07 at 3:27 PM
    This game is deceptively simple. The aim is to throw the paper ball into the bin, taking into account the speed and direction of the wind caused by the fan.

    Each time you miss, your score resets to zero! Trust me, you'll spend hours on this one!

    Thanks to Alan for suggesting this one.

    Note from Martin: Why it's Archna's Free Game of the Week

    You'll notice that its Archna's free game of the week, much like its Andrea's Freebies. MSE Archna is a stalwart of the team, and in charge of making sure everythings organised, sorted, collated, checked, researched and generally spiffing in the e-mail - as well as being a seriously good researcher.

    Sadly though, I noticed that occassionally she loses focus and catch her playing the games that we put at the end of the e-mail. She persuaded me this was part of her 'testing work' - so now it an official part of her job. She gets to choose the games each week! Blame her if they're no good (and as for why her names in pink.... I'm really not sure!)

    I got to 106 on my third go, then I could feel myself slipping into a coma.

    I think it's back to flight of the hamsters for another week. Not that that's a bad thing (probably the most enjoyable game I've played online).

    Come on Archna, what can you pull out of the bag?

    I like this one. Kept only getting to 6 ish then suddenly got the knack. Trick is to click and hold it until you're ready to let go. Got 26 using this method.

    I thought I'd try and spice this game up a little so I invented 'speed throw'.

    It's completely different!

    OK it's not really different at all, but a bit more fun.

    Basically see how many paper balls you can get in the basket in 1 minute.
    You have to be quick on the lob and ready to release in either direction sometimes as soon as the paper appears.

    My best - 18

    106?

    7 was the best I ever managed. Oh well

    This could become very addictive!!!!

    I've managed a paultry 17 so far and keep getting too confident as the score starts to mount.Not bad for a silver surfer though.
    Life in the old dog yet? :confused:

    Good game but I seem to remember Archna giving us this one before - do the same games get put here on a cycle?
